Country style ribs & brined bakers/first cook with Rockwood

BudgeezerBudgeezer Posts: 510
I saw someone recently making country style ribs so I had to give it a try. Rubbed then rested for 6 hours, smoked @ 350 for 70 minutes. Turned out great.
We have also been brining our bakers for a couple of hours the coating with garlic powder and kosher salt. They turn out crazy fluffy.
Last night was the first cook with Rockwood lump, so far I very impressed.

    @charlesmaneri since it was the first cook with the Rockwood we opted not to use any additional wood so we could get a base line of the lump.

    Not a smoke ring, just color difference in muscle groups in meat.
    Thank you,

    Looks great.  What do you brine the bakers in? Just salt water?


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    We used a 1 to 8 ratio for brine.  1 part salt, 8 parts water brine for 2-6 hours.  Do not puncture the potato with a fork or knife.  The turn out incredible fluffy.
